IRIS Theatre I Postville, Iowa I THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY January 24, 25 and 26 "THE DOLLY SISTERS" —with Betty Grable, June Haver and John Payne In the leading roles Filmed in gorgeous technicolor and produced by the company that gave you "State Fair", "Diamond Horseshoe", "Rosie O' Grady", "Hello, Frisco, Hello" and countless other truly great "musicals." Based on the true life story of the famous Dolly sisters, who were the outstanding musical comedy stars on the stage for many, many years. The picture has everything — it has stage settings that are unsurpassed for beauty—fine music, singing and dancing. Considered by all competent reviewers as the most elaborate of all the Betty Grable films. Doing the biggest business since "Going My Way" and "State Fair."
